Want to see your film on the big screen?

Submissions for our 2024 tour are CLOSED.
2025 film submissions will open in September 2024.

All kiwi and international surf filmmakers are welcome, and we would love to see professional, amateur and first-time filmmakers submit. Films must celebrate the art of wave-riding in all its diversity, simple as that.

We like to keep submission as simple as possible. No fees and simple digital film delivery.
